Beverly, MA, December 2, 2022 – StarWind Storage Gateway for Calamu allows the enterprise to build a fully automated, economical, scalable, immutable, and uniquely exfiltration-proof backup environment.
StarWind, a leading provider of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions for Enterprise ROBO, SMB & Edge, launches a new storage gateway for Calamu as part of its Virtual Tape Library (VTL) offering. You can now add an award-winning layer of security on your backup data, stored in any cloud and object storage of your choosing, that goes beyond immutability to protect against data theft and exfiltration.
StarWind Storage Gateway for Calamu, on top of automated backup and tiering to any cloud and object storage, introduces cutting-edge data protection technology that guards your backup data stored in the cloud against theft–a worsening ransomware trend. The solution transforms how data is stored, making it unusable if stolen or copied off-site. Calamu cyberstorage intelligence also prevents tampering and automatically sequesters suspicious activities.
Cloud backups are scalable and cost-effective, but also present a rich target for ransomware hackers. Calamu offers StarWind users cutting-edge protection for backup data stored in the cloud, going beyond immutability to eliminate risk in their backup environment.
— Jeff Weinstein, President & COO of Calamu
Immutable copies of data in the cloud can still be copied or compromised by ransomware and malicious actors, which is why Calamu is designed to prevent data theft in addition to being immutable. The combined solution reduces an enterprise’s overall attack surface area by eliminating backup data as a point of vulnerability. It’s easily operable via intuitive UIs where you can see and manage everything necessary in a matter of a few clicks. Scaling is extremely flexible while still abiding by regulatory data retention and archival requirements.
